@onetwosmilephotobooth | onetwosmilephotobooth.com
One, Two, Smile Photobooth is a family-owned business and started as a photo booth business officially in the beginning of 2017. We have expanded over the years and besides doing photo booth, we have incorporated our business to become a photo marketing agency. We have helped many of our corporate clients with their photo activations to gather necessary information, provide the best professional and fun experience for our client’s guests and to help our clients succeed in their marketing strategy. Best of all, photo booth is still our bread and butter so all of our non-corporate clients get the corporate treatment also.
